senator sheldon whitehouse of rhode island raised the campaign and a speech from the senate floor last month. >> as i have said in previous speeches, we are sleepwalking. as congress sleepwalks, americans are taking action on their own incarnation of the nonprofit organization 350.org, for example, students and more than 150 colleges and universities across the country are pressing as institutions to sell off portions of their endowment portfolios that are invested in fossil fuel companies. the students are employing a stool -- employing there's schools and divest from the polluters. this type of campaign was employed effectively in the 1980's to pull investments from south africa during apartheid. american college in university endowments estimating $400 billion, this movement by students deserves significant attention. >> democratic senator sheldon whitehouse of rhode island speaking last month. in light of the weak climate deal reached at the united nations climate change conference last month in doha, many environmentalist have lock on the fossil fuel divestment campaign as the new
yielding the floor. the presiding officer: the senator from rhode island. mr. whitehouse: i would just ask the question of the distinguished senator from alabama who i have very high regard for. he has been my ranking member on the judiciary committee, he is my ranking member on the budget committee. we share the experience of having served as united states attorneys. i have great admiration for him. but i heard him say something that brought me to the floor and that is that it has been the practice of the majority leader to seek to pick and choose amendments that the minority may offer. and my question to the distinguished senator from alabama is: does that not overstate the case? can he identify a time when the majority leader has ever said to the minority party, you can bring up an amendment but it has to be this one? and the reason i ask that question is because my understanding is that the effort to control the amendment process by the majority leader has been limited to two things. one, the number of amendments, which makes a lot of sense when you consider that the very small bill to
